Long is 55 of age. He has a life partner and eight children, four single children and four married children. He permanently lives with his family in the Baray district of Kompong Tom province, Cambodia. He has spent most his lifetime in the agricultural business. He and his wife work together in the field to support the family, planting various kinds of crops, primarily growing rice.
Long aims to continually improve his business to earn and save more income for the future. He is now asking for additional capital in the amount of KHR 4,000,000 to buy a plot of farmland to expand production in the coming years. This loan will enable him to make more income from the business and change his standard of living. As he is getting older, Long hopes to provide knowledge and a high education to his children as his legacy.
